Artist: Mae Questel
Recording Title: The Music Goes Round And Round
Here she is with “The Music Goes Round And Round”, a Decca recording from 1936.
So by now you’ve probably placed Mae as the voice of Betty Boop, but she also voiced Popeye’s leading lady Olive Oyl as well as their baby Sweetpea. She even filled in for the “Sailor Man” himself when his regular voice, Jack Mercer , served in World War II.
Betty Boop certainly hasn’t gone anywhere, but a younger generation may be familiar with Mae’s role in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Click here for “THE BLESSING!”
